Sony’s latest smartphone is all about the selfie.
The Sony Xperia C4 is the latest in Sony’s line of “PROselfie” smartphones, featuring a 5-megapixel camera with 25mm wide-angle lens, Exmor R for mobile sensor, LED flash, and HDR support. Sony’s also thrown in its Superior Auto shooting mode and SteadyShot technology on the software side, all of which will work together to produce some high-quality self photographs. All of those front-facing camera features doesn’t mean that Sony’s neglected the C4’s rear camera, though, because the phone’s got a 13-megapixel shooter with LED flash and HDR.
Packed inside the Xperia C4’s 7.9mm-thick OmniBalance shell is a 5.5-inch 1920×1080 IPS display, 1.7GHz octa-core MediaTek MTK6752 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a microSD card slot, and a 2600mAh battery, and it’ll be offered in single and dual SIM versions. The C4 is powered by Android 5.0 and will be available in white, black, and mint color options.
Sony says that the Xperia C4 will be available in “select markets” starting in June 2015. There’s no word yet on how much you’ll have to pay to make the C4 your new selfie machine, but it could be an affordable alternative to the Xperia Z4. The Xperia C4’s not quite as high-end as the Z4, but it does have an octa-core processor, large and high-res screen, and a design similar to Sony’s flagship.
